Abstract

Cyrtodactylus tripuraensis (Agarwal, Mahony, Giri, Chaitanya & Bauer, 2018) was recently described from Tripura state of northeast India. In June 2018, we found a subadult and an adult male individual in Lawachara National Park, ‎Maulvibazar District, Sylhet Division, Bangladesh. We identify the individuals as C. tripuraensis based on morphological study. Though the new locality of C. tripuraensis is approximately only 40 km away from the nearest locality in Tripura state, India, this is the first record of this species in Bangladesh.
